    Sad day for the familes
    Alex Carey:

    ... the 20th century has been characterized by three developments of great political importance: The growth of democracy, the growth of corporate power, and the growth of corporate propaganda as a means of protecting corporate power against democracy.

    Australian social scientist, quoted by Noam Chomsky in World Orders Old and New

    Thanks for that piece JB. The Marines also issued a indefinite moratorium on all Mortar Rounds World Wide. Until it is cleared to be safe.



    The Marines were part of the 2nd Marine Division, a ground combat force based at Camp Lejeune, N.C.

    The Marines immediately issued an indefinite moratorium on firing of all such mortars worldwide until an investigation clears as safe the type of weapon and ammunition in the tragedy.

    The 60mm mortar is a weapon that traditionally requires three to four Marines to operate, but it's common during training for others to observe nearby.

    The 230-square-mile desert facility, located about 140 miles southeast of Reno, stores conventional ammunition being taken out of use and, according to its website, also serves as "a premier training location for special forces."



    The U.S. Joint Munitions Command says on its website that the depot is an "archive site" for storing slow-moving ammunition and stocks awaiting disposal.

    The facility has more than 2,915 structures including igloos, supply warehouses, maintenance buildings, munitions sheds, and office buildings.....snip~




    Army, Navy and Marine troops train year-round at the facility, which also provides training for foreign military nationals.

    It's line of duty. They weren't scumbags mixing crap in their mom's basement to target civs.

    They signed up for their country. That's heroic. Regardless of how they died. No one said they were heroes because they got blown up. You'd understand that if you weren't so busy trying to be a nuisance.

    It's starting to sound like a round cooked in the tube.

    Shameless Harry Reid Uses Dead Marines to Fearmonger on Sequester.....

    As Ben Shapiro would say, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is dancing on the graves of dead Marines in order to score political points. Today during remarks on the Senate floor about an explosion at an Army base in Nevada last night that killed seven Marines during a training exercise, Reid shamelessly implied sequestration and cut backs in funding were to blame for the accident.

    Just for clarification purposes, when Reid referred to "Mr. President" during his remarks, it wasn't in reference to President Obama, but the presiding officer of the U.S. Senate.

    The Marine Corps isn't happy:


    NBC's Jim Miklaszewski reports: Now I can tell you, Marine Corps officials this afternoon are taking a strong exception to what Harry Reid implied. Saying that this exercise, for example, was planned well in advance, had nothing to do with the budget cuts. There were no corners cut, and if they couldn't afford to have all the safety precautions into place, they wouldn't do the exercise.

    And in fact, one Marine Corps official told us a short time ago that he considers this nothing but pure political posturing on the backs of these dead Marines.....snip~

    Looks like Good Ole Harry proves what a scumbag he is and has always been. Seems he has the same concept as Hillary. What difference does it make.!

    They deserve our respect for enlisting in the service. If you can't do that, move on.

    You're not going to find too many people that will side with you on ridiculing servicemen who died in the line of duty.
